More recently, he brought the guitar into battle against fellow video star Stevie T, who plays a 20-string black walnut model built by Chinese company 10s, in a humorous video titled Djent 2019.
Now, Dines and Stevie T have teamed up once again, this time putting their combined 38 strings to use for a good cause.
As Dines explains in the video above, he and Stevie are selling their 18-string and 20-string guitars on eBay, and the funds will be used to purchase instruments for children whose families are unable to afford them on their own.
Says Dines, “The 18-string guitar, it’s awesome and I love it. But there’s more important things than me holding on to this monstrosity of a guitar.”
He adds jokingly, “Hopefully somebody bids more than, like, $500 and we actually spend a good amount of money for kids.”
Apparently Dines has little to worry about, as the bidding on his Ormsby currently sits at $16,300.
